Very nicely written. My favourite line: “The one who is in control of both sides of this war.” We don't often think about that truth, and I'm glad you shared it. Thanks for the reminder.

Very well done. I like the little details, like the lump in her throat, and a few paragraphs later, being unable to swallow. Little touches like that really distinguish a good writer.

This was very naturally portrayed. Good realistic writing on your part. Thank you for sharing and God bless you and yours, littlelight
A very touching scene. You have expressed the couple's emotions very well and their solace in their Commander-in-Chief.

I like the last line. My son-in-law spent seven months in Iraq and I know my daughter had much of these feelings. Most people have no idea what our troops see overseas, but God is always in control and sees all. There is a huge comfort in that. Thanks.
